"2023 Starting a new year"

Here we are, starting a brand new year. After the fires in the West Central Mountains between Cascade and Ola last summer, some of our favorite trails on West mountain and around tripod peak are going to need lots of work.

Starting in June, we will do some reconnaissance and some day and weekend work trips to that area. We need more certified sawyers, so if you're interested in learning, start with the first aid and CPR class at the beginning of April. Then sign up for one of the sawyer training classes.

If you get that done, you will be handed a Stihl and as much help as you need to cut trees on the trail. (Trusty pack horses bring the saws and safety equipment along on the trails). For those not wanting to run a saw, there is always lots of brush clearing to be done and the nippers are provided.

The leadership team will be putting together a calendar next weekend, so watch the website and frequent emails for projects that you can help with. The cold weather, frozen ground and lots of company kept me off horseback for awhile, but I am anxious to get back to riding.
We did have a great turnout for the lighted horse parade on December 10. It is not affiliated with BCH but some chapter members rode or drove in it.

Hope to see lots of people in February at the Celebration Park ride.
